Hi Richard, thanks so much for reading and the kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed the piece. Yes I agree with you, thinking about our particular existence within the timespan of human civilisation is both fascinating and empowering. Considering what has come before and what is yet to come really grants an individual living in the here and now agency. I for one am excited about what the human collective may achieve!
